Síðasta brottför haustsins
Í gær flaug síðasti nemi haustbrottfarar á brott í skiptinámið sitt, alla leið til Japan. Þetta var lítill hópur sem hélt á brott í skiptinám nú í haust og til vel valinna landa. Vegna Covid-19 dreifðust brottfarir yfir lengri tíma en vanalega, fyrstu nemar fóru af stað í ágúst og sá seinasti nú í lok nóvember. Skondið er að segja frá því að nokkur þeirra fyrstu til að fara út, sem eru í 3 mánaða skiptinámi, eru einmitt á heimleið núna um helgina. Dreifingin er því töluverð. Við erum ákaflega stolt af þeirri þrautseigju og sveigjanleika sem nemarnir okkar hafa sýnt á þessum óvenjulegu tímum.
Við erum byrjuð að leita af fjölskyldum fyrir nemana sem koma í ágúst 2021.? Hér getur þú kynnst þeim: https://www.afs.is/fosturfjol…/skiptinemar-a-islandi-2021/
Have you ever wondered how our participants are experiencing their exchanges? In the coming months both hosting and sending participants have the opportunity to do a takeover on our instagram stories. They will show how their life abroad is or how it is to be an AFS’er in our country. Have you seen the stories of Mateya yet? Check them out now. She will be sharing her life until the end of the weekend.

Icelandic classes for participants
Our volunteers have already prepared 5 online Icelandic classes for our students. We went through several topics and learned a bunch of new phrases and vocabulary. Some students already understand quite well and some still need more time but we are making progress! ?
There two more classes to go so there is still a lot to be looking forward to!
